Session Description
Proposed by the EPA Section on Old Age Psychiatry -Prescribing Psychotropics can often be challenging in old age because of several aging-specific parameters (changes in pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics, frequent polypharmacy increasing the risk of drug interactions and iatrogeny, higher sensitivity to side effects, frequent comorbidities). In addition, clinical presentations of psychiatric disorders differ in old age. Moreover, psychiatric symptoms in old age can be more easily misidentified because of the importance of psycho-somatic comorbidities as well as the neurocognitive disorders that could likely lead to anosognosia, lack of insight and difficulties in verbal expression. The course will present the following aspects: -presentation of the main psychiatric domains and diseases in old age and their specificities compared to younger adults (recent classifications and diagnostic criteria) -presentation of behavioral and psychologic symptoms associated to neurocognitive disorders and psycho-somatic comorbidities -specificities and indications of psychotropics in old age: pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics, drug interactions, dosage, side effects, prescribing duration, indications, managing with the lack of international guidelines in the daily practice -presentation of non pharmacological therapeutic : Information and Communication Technologies (serious gaming, virtual reality, connected devices), other therapies (CBT, music therapy, olfactotherapy..)

Session Description
The Live Q&A of this session will take place in the Live Sessions auditorium. Please refer to the interactive programme for the exact time and channel.

The social, economic and scientific changes occurred in the recent years have had, and are still having, a significant impact on psychiatric practice and on the clinical presentation of many mental disorders. Some traditional syndromes seem to be disappeared, such as catatonia, while new forms of mental health problems are coming to psychiatric consultation. Despite these significant changes, psychiatry as a profession still bases its education, research and clinical practice on a knowledge developed over the last two centuries. Social changes are modifying the role of psychiatrists and of mental health professionals in the modern society and therefore there is the need to re-think the agenda for educational needs of the future generation of psychiatrists. In this workshop, speakers will discuss the main unmet needs in education in psychiatry from different perspectives, from psychopharmacology to social psychiatry, with a specific focus on the impact of the pandemic on the educational needs of early career psychiatrists.

Proposed by the EPA section on Old Age Psychiatry -The COVID 19 pandemic quickly showed that the older population is a risk group with particular vulnerability. This was particularly true for patients with dementia. They had difficulty understanding the situation, observing distance rules and using masks appropriately. The situation is particularly difficult in nursing homes. In many countries the visit of relatives and also doctors in nursing homes has been banned. Nevertheless, the proportion of people who died in these institutions was high in all countries, for example in Germany up to one third of deaths. What consequences this has and has had for nursing homes, relatives, dementia patients and the people caring for them is to be discussed in greater depth in this symposium, with particular attention being paid to ethical aspects. It will also be discussed which preventive measures can be derived for the future.
